Visited here with a friend while visiting the area and what a pleasant surprise. Dinner was great, the fresh cut fries were awesome! Great draft beer selection as well. Staff was really friendly.

Everything is very nice for being in such a small town. But it has changed ownership and I do not get the breakfast perks that I am used to. Rude front desk staff if you are dealing with the college students.

My family took me here for Mother’s Day brunch. Oh my-it was delicious. A hot bar, salad bar, made to order hot items, and that delicious dessert bar! What a great meal, and very reasonably priced.

My husband and I stayed at the Kirkley recently. We were quite tired and didn't feel like going out to look for a good restaurant. We hit the jackpot when we decided to stay and have dinner at The Great Room. The atmosphere is relaxed...More

A very nice looking place, but this dump gave all three members of my party food poisoning. Health department contacted. Never again.
